    Points to Remember

AP EAMCET Counselling procedure - 2018

After AP EAMCET the toughest time for an engineering aspirant comes in the form of counseling for admission into colleges.Since they have to choose the course that would stay with them forever, students obviously are under tremendous pressures.

Authorities, however, make arrangements to ensure that the process is a smooth affair enabling students to pick course and college without encountering any problems.

The Department of Technical Education (DTE), which conducts counseling issues notification in all the major newspapers giving details about the ranks to be called each day and the certificates to be brought to the counseling centres various categories.


As per the existing procedure students need to bring their SSC and Intermediate memoranda of marks, study certificate from 6th class to Intermeidate, caste cetificte issued by the MRO or RDO , whichever is applicable and the income certificate. For non-local candidates, a document certifying 10 years of residence in the State has to be obtained.

The rankers invited for the day will first be sent into the waiting hall. From there, they will be called to the registration counter where the students will register name, hall ticket number, rank category and time of reporting and finally affix their signature on the form.

Then they will move to the verification counter where a counselling officer will check all the original certificates. If the documents are intact, a sheet will be pinned on the certificates. Students have to go through a final certification of their documents once again. A similar procedure will be followed at all the centres in the State. Candidates will them move to the actual counseling counter.

The counseling officer there will feed the rank and hall-ticket number into the computer, which will display the seats available in various courses in all the college for the students to decide. Counselling officers will also give information about the college, hostel facilities and the faculty.

The students need to fill in a form giving five options of the courses and colleges. Based on their choice, the complete information is displayed on the computer to them. The students need to take the final decision in consultation with one of the parents allowed to be present at the allotment counter.

The moment candidates write their option, the counseling officer will feed it into they system that would land in the main server. Options from all over the State will also land in the main server and the software has been designed in such a way that the allotment will be done in the sequence of ranks. The students will be given a chance to verigy all the details such as the college choosen and course allotted before the allotment order is cleared.

One-Stop experience

Once the allotment order is cleared, the students will have to move to the bank counters of different banks located inside the counseling centers to pay the prescribed fee. Befor leaving the premises, the candidates will be given the fee receipt and provisional allotmen t order. Going by the past experience more than 150 students are allotted seats in an hour in all the six centers.

The constant update splashed on the screens help students make up their mind about the stream and college based on the availability of seats even before they go to the allotment counter.

Candidates need not be apprehensive of lower rank students getting admitted before the higher ranked students. The software is designed in such a way that the computer would not accept the allotment if it is not done in the sequence of ranks. Suppose a 100th ranker in Vishakapatnam moves to the counseling counter before a 50th ranker in Hyderabad , the computer would accept the 100th rankers choice only after the 99th rankers choice is cleared.
